Sinha backs call for higher NPA provisioning

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Deputy Governor Anand Sinha has backed the Mahapatra committee’s recommendation of higher provisioning for restructured assets. Banks, however, had opposed the proposal, saying this would lead to a sharp rise in bad assets.

Earlier, the central bank had set up a working group under the chairmanship of RBI Executive Director B Mahapatra to review the guidelines on restructured advances of banks and financial institutions. In its report released in July, the committee had suggested the regulatory forbearance while recasting debt be done away with after two years.

In the interim, for fresh loan recasts, it had sought an increase in standard asset provisioning to five per cent, against the current two per cent. Currently, banks can classify a restructured standard asset as standard debt by increasing the provisioning requirement. Apart from standard asset provisioning of two per cent, banks also have to ensure provisioning for diminution in the net present value of the asset, following the debt recast.
